Be A Volunteer


We are building an energetic and enthusiastic team of volunteers for the inaugural Richmond World Festival and we want you join us for the fun!

There are many volunteer opportunities available and we can find a position which will suit your skills and attributes.  As a volunteer, you will receive volunteer privileges, food tickets to use at the food trucks, a first edition RWF graphic t-shirt, and a chance to have a behind the scenes festival experience.

Volunteer shifts will be available from Friday to Sunday, September 4-6.  We are looking for volunteers to assist with the overall production of the event with opportunities in the following areas:

  • Artist Hospitality
  • Information Tent
  • Artisan Marketplace
  • Kids World
  • Sponsor Activation
  • Sponsor Reception
  • Global Village
  • Canada Pavilion
  • Wide World of Sports
  • Event Production

Please note that volunteers are required to attend a volunteer information session on Wednesday, August 26, from 6:00-7:30pm at Richmond City Hall. If you cannot attend these sessions, alternate arrangements can be made.

For more information, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Manisha Jassal, at



We are offering a limited number of quality sponsorship opportunities to companies who want to engage with culturally diverse demographic. Each opportunity will be unique and your brand will be a stand out.
